Macarons at Midnight: A Wish Novel
When Lise Santos stumbles into a bakery’s midnight taste test, she meets a supercute boy. He’s as sweet as the macarons they share, and Lise is totally smitten. She’s pretty sure he is, too — but they never get a chance to exchange names. Now Lise has to find him again….
When Lise finally discovers who her mystery guy is, he’s not at all what she expected — and suddenly they don’t get along anymore! Things become even more complicated when her friend Viv starts to express interest in him. Now Lise’s head and heart are all in a jumble. Can she gather the courage to admit her true feelings … or is this a recipe for total disaster?
